And look at that links vids, you have sometimes two or more opposing things being translated, the visuals say one thing the audio another,
Maybe that is the point..... To see how much our language directs us. If we visually see something, but hear communication that differs, what do we as humans do?
I can almost promise you will begin to see what these people are really talking about and doing, it is a mockery to them and their research with this vampyr non-sense, it really is.
I have no need or reason to fully elaborate and explain the intrinsic and often times hard to follow concepts to those that chose not to look for themselves as that would be insulting to their intelligence.
I am not trying to be rude but it is apparent other members agree I present "bated" and unreasonable arguments, so I will just contribute the relevant research I have been doing almost non stop around the clock. B-man

Hello Noinden. I went back to the original post in FL that you refer to to reread it. No, you took it the wrong way (obviously it's not your fault, for you cannot understand the language in which the post is written). Basically, what we were discussing there is one of the main ideas in archaeology that presents IE guys as wary tribes wandering across steppes, taking with them seeds of wheat, riding on horses and using chariots.
The story goes that these IE guys were more inteligent than the poor non-IE tribes they found in their migrations.
Thus, what some archaeologists seem to imply is that being wary, having the knowledge of agriculture, riding on horses, and having invented the wheel makes you 'better' or 'better fitted' than the non-IE guys they found. Actually, what that image shows is a rather stupid guy: having invented agriculture, he involves himself in extermination wars, instead of taking the time to invent music, or study maths. Our view is that this is quite a simplistic scenario. That's all. The bibliography shows precisely what you noticed: most of the advocats of this "wheat-axe-horse = IE" equation are using old concepts that do not match what we currently know about human groups.
The title of the post should then be read as "Are really the old Indo-Europeans those stupid war-loving riders that some archaeologists tell us they were?"
Hope now is clear.
